You still haven't provided basic background information such as:
* the URL to your site
* version of MediaWiki
* version of PHP
* version of anything else
* how long it's been installed
* how you installed
* whether it worked before and stopped working, or never worked
* if you've made any customizations to the configuration

The SearchUpdate class is defined in SearchUpdate.php, which is included from
UpdateClasses.php, which is included from GlobalSettings.php, which is included
long before this code is reached.

So, this shouldn't be possible unless:
* Something's broken
* The code was altered
* There's a bad mix of files from different versions, etc
